I am sort of delighted to tell you all that Chicago ended the year on a high, er, that's a high murder rate, of course! Shortly before Christmas, at a score of 500, they had reached the highest figure since 2008 but determined not to be out-done, and thereby risk gaining a reputation as a bunch of 'wusses', they really pulled their trigger fingers out and today I can tell you, courtesy of The Weekly Standard, that in 2012 they achieved a body count of 532 for the year!
I indicated above that I am somewhat reluctant to spread this news because I am aware that one or two of my regular readers hail from the 'Windy City' and I want to assure them that I do not mean to denigrate their great metropolis. However, I do want to ask them why the hell they keep voting in corrupt and utterly useless Democrat administrations in election after election after election?
I did wonder, for approximately half a nano-second, whether Mayor Emanuel might think that totaly disarming his citizens was really such a good idea? But then I remembered that Rahm Emanuel is a slippery, slithery snake only interested in sliding back into the mayoral office until his children are old enough to take his place - that being, I gather, something a Chicagoan tradition!
